Can your degreaser / oil stain remover be used safely on tarmac without degrading it . Thinking of using it before your tarmac sealer

Yes it is perfectly safe to use on tarmac.

Can this be applied to fresh concrete (ie 6 days old)

It is recommended that newly laid concrete is left to cure for 30 days before applying a stain to the surface, the moisture evaporating and the chemical reaction taking place as the concrete cures can cause the stain to fail and lift.

Concrete staining

This question was asked by
Kate van den Driessche


I would like to discuss options for staining a poured, polished concrete floor with a brass inlay design. The floor was exposed to a leak 12 months ago and as a result has a number of cracks and ‘pigment picture framing’ that is an eye sore. We are exploring options of replacing the whole floor, but I would like to understand what finish we could achieve with filling cracks and staining the whole area. Could you please contact me to discuss further.
Many thanks,

Hi, I have recently laid new concrete and plan to grind and polish shortly. Could I mix the above with the densifier at the polishing stage.
I am looking to get a random density of a colour as a finish. If not is there another product I could use inj this way.
thanks in advance

Hi John
yes you can mix the Endura faux Fusion with the densifier at the polishing stage
We strongly recommend you do a small test area first though

Sealing an internal concrete floor in my kitchen with underfloor heating

This question was asked by

Hi, im hoping someone can help. I have just laid a concrete floor which I have ground and honed. I now wish to seal the floor and so looking for a sealer that is suitable to for internal use and is ok with underfloor heating. I would also like a sealer that will enhance the colours of the aggregate and glass I have added as well as the concrete its self. I would also like the finish to be silk / gloss. are you able to direct me to a product that would be suitable please..thanks

The only one I would really suggest mainly as the floor has been honed would be the High Gloss Polyurethane as the is the one that will adhere the best.

Hardening a garage floor

This question was asked by
Grant Wilde

Hi, looking to seal a residential concrete garage floor which is constantly dusting and so soft it can be scratched easily with a metal object or even the sole of my shoes. Ideally it could be applied quickly and easily to half the garage at a time, so I don’t have to pull all the stuff out at once! Would the nano-lithium be suitable? Thanks.

No the Lithium densifier is for use when polishing, it will have little affect on a normal concrete slab.

What you will be best of doing, if you can, give the floor a really good jet washing to remove the loose surface material and then seal the concrete, this will stop the surface from dusting again.

Concrete sealer for garden ornaments

This question was asked by
Jennifer Morton

Hi, I’m trying to find a concrete sealer I can put over concrete ornaments I’ve made and painted with masonry paint, preferably something that gives uv protection and will be non yellowing and dry with anything from Matt to light sheen, not full gloss, for you sell anything that fits the bill? Many thanks and best wishes Jenny


As you have use a paint on the concrete I would suggest using a water based sealer rather than a solvent based one as the latter could remove the paint.

We have a range of colours designed specifically for colouring concrete, if you are interested please check out
